Remove Blood From Pine

I'm embarrassed to ask, but I got some blood on a pine door that I was installing (my chiseling technique needs refinement). Any tricks on getting a smear of dried blood from a pine door? Rather than painting them, I want to stain them (with something other than blood), so I'd like to remove the blood stain if possible.

Have you tried using hydrogen peroxide on it? That's what I used on my shirt to take it off to keep it from staining my clothes.

First, I guess you're going to have to bleed on a piece of scrap from the door project, so you can test whatever technique you decide to try, before you try to clean up the actual door.

Hydrogen peroxide. The 3% stuff from the first-aid aisle in the drugstore will do just fine. Don't use the stronger stuff (6% or more) that's used for bleaching hair, as it may bleach the wood too.
The other 97% is water, so it will dampen the wood and raise the grain. Allow the wood to dry thoroughly, then sand the spot lightly, before staining and finishing.
One hand on the chisel. One hand on the mallet. Fingers are safe that way.

I kinda like the look of bloodwood.

P.S. If you have some bloody scrap, try some of the laundry preparation stuff that us supposed to remove blood.

But seriously... try hot 5% hydrogen peroxide. Heat it in a microwave until it's hot but not boiling. Daub it on with a piece of cloth or paper towel. Of course, test it on some inconspicuous spot first.

But wouldn't the test logically require a new blood source? ;-)
Patriarch, wondering just how far one should reasonably go to protect pine from peroxide...
